She Stoops to Conquer

by Oliver Goldsmith

When two young city gentlemen pursue romance in the country they come up against more than they bargained for in this insightful and witty romantic romp. It’s city vs. country, men vs. women, and parents vs. children—with love conquering all—in one of the most popular British comedies of all time.

The 39 Steps

by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have a fast-paced whodunit! Packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!
